We have a huge problem. I bought an unused 18x52 Intex Ultra pool from a "sweet old man" on Craigslist last fall. He assured me that although the box had been slightly damaged that he had checked and everything was there and undamaged. Unfortunately, I think the "sweet old man" must have used the 18 horizontals and 18 vertical poles to make one of the many other pools he sold last summer complete. These poles are the same ones that make up the 16x48, 20x48, and the 24x52 pools. I am desperate to find someone with just a frame they are wanting to sell. My 13yo daughter has had her heart set on having her Birthday/pool Party at the end of May. We can not afford the $440 Intex wants for 36 poles and unfortunately, we were not gentle with Big Blueness when we took her down, or I'm sure she would have served us well for what would have been her 6th season.
